What causes Acne Scarring?

Dr. McNeill: Picking!!!! No matter how much acne, or how large acne cysts become, they will not cause scarring if left untouched. The skin may hyperpigment and become darker for a while, but this hyperpigmentation will not be permanent. Picking at acne can cause scars that are permanent. Take Care to lessen hyperpigmentation with a hat.
